On Monday 11th December, Key Stage 3 students were rewarded for their positive attainment and behaviour in school with an opportunity to try cricket with a coach from Warwickshire County Cricket. 2 groups from Year 7 and 8 and a group from Year 9 participated in a street cricket session where they got to try their hand at the sport and play lots of games.
Street cricket is a brilliant entry alternative for those that may struggle to afford a standard membership or travel to formal cricket clubs. It requires minimal equipment and facilities and can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
Our students have been given a wonderful opportunity to experience a sport and coaching that they potentially normally wouldn’t have access to. We encourage all students to take this experience further with the free, 3-hour sessions that will be starting after Christmas in Longbridge. All equipment, facilities and coaching will be provided.
As a school, we look forward to offering our students more opportunities like this across a wide range of different experiences. A massive thank you must go to Zack and Warwickshire Cricket for a great day!
